    That's how our season was two years ago. Weather was warm for a couple weeks then dropped with snow till the beginning of May. The mushrooms had already started growing then got smoked by the wet cold weather. It sucks, but I guess it's another reason to appreciate them even more the years you do well.

    We found four a week ago just on our way to the camp site. Went back out today and found I think as many as I have in a day. Also got a couple pheasant backs, which I didn't really know of until this year.

    Young dryads saddle is a good mushroom. Not a fan of eating them as a meal on their own, but sautéed with onions on a steak, or added to a sauce or soup they are quite tasty. Just make sure they're small and the polyspores on the back are very underdeveloped, otherwise they are tough and taste like wood.
